Here’s a quiz for anyone who has ever traveled the country, seen a sign, and asked, “Is that really the town’s name?” After you’re done, head over to the mental_floss blog and let us know if there are any oddly named places in your part of the world.
I only got 4 out of 11 correct (a measly 36%). I’m sure you can do better. Take the quiz.
